“To get this win feels incredible. It was the first win of my UFC career and it was a must-win. This week has been a lot about SBG against Stockton so to get the first win was absolutely necessary," said Lobov after the bout.


“I got the first win and Conor will get the second later tonight. These guys did some dirty and unprofessional things throughout the week, but we will get the wins tonight when it really matters."

In the co-main event, Anthony Johnson delivered a sensational performance to KO Glover Teixeira inside 13 seconds following a ruthless combo that floored his opponent.
